i guess i am sitting in similar shoes, my wedding is just around a year and a half away. i weigh 282, and it scared me to see how close i was to 300, and my ideal goal is around 150but i dont expect to be there before the wedding anytime in 2010 would rock. i'd love to know some of your recipes if your willing to share.

Cynthia - my recipes are scattered all over here, look around! The 100 lb club 101 Things to Do with Chicken thread is good. I'll be adding more soon to what I have posted here.

You can totally make progress before that wedding! Stick around here!

Amanda,
Your story is amazing. It is definitely the motivation I need for today. I am 230 lbs, short and totally unhappy with my apprearance.

My husband at I are going to Dominican in the middle of January, and I find myself 6 weeks out and terrified of being the fattest person there. I always look around to see if there are any fat girls there and most of the time I am disappointed. In a few weeks I have to start looking for a bathing suit and vacation wear.

I am really disappointed with my dedication so far, but maybe this desperation will motivate me. Wish me luck because i will need it.

Stacie

Amanda your story really touched me you seem like you have grown into such a happier person. It is crazy to look at your picture collage at the beginning where you are singing to the end where you are dancing. It doesn't seem like your spirit changed at all . I really want to have a transformation so badly like yours. I really loved all of your tips of what you have learned and changed.

Thanks so much for being so inspiring

Stacie and Amber - thank you both so much. You both CAN have this - you just need to make the decision that it is TIME. Get on that wagon, stick around here, and keep going.

You can do this!

I don't know why but your story made me cry at work! Lol. I'm so happy for you. It's hard...definitely not easy, but worth it.
